Happy 18th Birthday, Amanda!
My little girl is not so little any more. She is an adult now, and gets to take her place in the universe. It came entirely too fast for me, but she seems to be taking it in stride with her usual quirky grace. I pray I raised her right, but I think she'll be fine.
Tonght's cake is chocolate, of course, but with ganache instead of icing, and coffee flavored ice cream. Ahhhh, at least her taste buds have grown up with her! No more gummy yummies, sour candies, or anything else sugar-coated-sugar flavored. There is hope yet.
